16_IND_Empiric_P02 2016 - Sensitivity analysis to determine the injury risk for a selected crash load case on the influence of the occupant position at t0, defining the baseline to derive specifications for future integrated safety systems.

Project: Research project

Description

Integrated safety systems gaining more importance in the area of occupant protection. Due to the introduction of pre-crash measures (for example: AEB) an occupant forward movement is likely. In those cases the
occupant is at t0 not in the intended "standard sitting position" as defined in the norms. Additionally a deviating positon of the occupant can also be seen by changing the seat position relatively to the vehcile
which are as outside the norm specifications. Actual restraint systems are not developed for all combinations of those occupant and seat movements and are not defined in the relevant testing procedures.
The questions that arise are: What benefits can be expected with respect to the occupant restraint systems if the corresponding logic (for example occupant weight) is modified before t0, due to specific occupant positions?
What are the requirements for future integrated safety systems?
